Just Got a 480, Stupid Move? - Page 2

post #11 of 66
So have you tested it for stuttering in games? http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/7883...usage-bad.html
Because if it don't, you're all good

I bought a GTX480 over the 570 and have no problems at all! But some do
So "if it works, you done good"

I know theres heat issues but i figured i could wait a while till 480's run low and kill it with folding then RMA the sucker maybe get a newer model card.
haha! nice work i'm also in the same boat, i'd rather go twin 480's than twin 570's

189GBP!! that is a deal too good to refuse, i saw em on OCuk for 205GBP and was SUPER tempted to grab a few, but i'm still quite happy with my twin GTX285's - i'll give it 6 months and make the switch, i've usually always gone with previous gen flagship cards as the performance/price becomes insane!

But i'd say a single 480 is still gonna own 1080p resolutions, i'm a slight step behind in terms of number crunching power, but I still max out everything at 1920x1200.

For the mone there is no better card. Two in slightly is stupid fast. Nothing runs slow. Great choices on getting the 480's.

Seems like alot of threads here people prefer the 570>480 and I can see why. If you can get a 480 though for cheaper than a 570, (unless it's like an open box 570 from the egg), then the 480's a no brainer right?

sounds like its not a hardware problem. Games ? I've never got a problem in any game, especially BF2.

570's seem to have weaker VRM's that tend to get the card killed once voltage is turned up/OCP turned off or something

I really want to see some in depth reviews of the Gigabyte GTX 570 OC with the windforce cooler. It looks to have a 580 pcb and possibly 580 vrms cuz of the 6+8 pin as opposed to the 6+6 pin on the other 570's.

Haven't seen to much about these yet and what little I have some people are complaining about having trouble upping the voltage on them.

6950 flash to 6970, Repeat later for cross fire. Thats my strategy, when I can afford a 6950 that is..

Was thinking this until I started seeing threads of how the 6950 still lags behind a 6970 some after unlocking.

Those 570's were dying (the vrm's) because people were shutting over current protection off and feeding the cards more voltage than the vrm's could handle.

The 480 is still a beast of a card. When you do have enough $$$, pick up another and put them under water, don't look back.
